Falls of Bruar, Perthshire, Scotland.

This evening, I am reporting on the Falls of Bruar which comprise a series of waterfalls on the Bruar Water in central Scotland, about 8 miles north of Pitlochry. Location is close to the House of Bruar shopping mall.

The Falls are a local beauty spot and have proved a popular tourist attraction since the 18th century. Here Robert Burns, Scotland’s National Poet, was inspired to write (in 1787) “The Humble Petition of Bruar Water”.

Close by is a footpath, two viewing bridges and a hiking trail.

NB: In common with many other landscapes, mountains , lochs and beauty spots in Scotland great care must be exercised as what appear to be attractive places to explore and enjoy can prove fatal. On July 12th 2017 a tourist who was swimming at the Falls was dragged down by a strong undercurrent and drowned. Another person drowned on the same day whilst swimming in Loch Lomond.
